You did not know the time of your visitation.
And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, saying, “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”
The day began with the spreading of palms and shouts of praise. It must have been a joyous experience for the Lord as he rode through the crowds on that donkey. But now the harsh reality of the week has set in and all that Jesus can do is weep for the people who would soon nail him to a cross. There is a remorse present in the Lord's voice as he cries for those who he was sent to rescue from their sins. Would that they had known who he really was.
Sometimes in life we get a second chance - I have heard it said that God is all about second and third chances.. the scriptures testify to how God never gives up on us. Yet, while that is true, it is also true that there are times and seasons that are never repeated. Such was this last entrance to Jerusalem by the Son of God and this day might be such a one for you. If you sense His voice today please do not reject Him. For this might the time of your visitation.
Open the ears and eyes of my heart Lord to sense your presence in my life.
